Giannis Is A Playable Character In Fortnite
While you can dominate the court in NBA 2K games with Giannis, you can now also dominate the battle royale island in Fortnite. Players can buy two different skins in the Giannis bundle. One is just a Fortnite version of Giannis but another is Giannis is a Greek god-type armor. Players can also play on Giannis’ Dream Island to earn exclusive rewards. If you play the game and are a fan of Giannis, this bundle is a must-have.
Popular Amongst Kids
This type of collaboration shows how popular Giannis is amongst the younger generations. While Fortnite is played by people of all ages, it is insanely popular with the younger generations. For Fortnite to spend time on this collaboration, it means that there must be a proper demand for it. Giannis is so popular that he transcends the basketball court and is now a pop culture icon. What is great about this is that it is creating fans of the game and the Milwaukee Bucks. Young fans will grow up idolizing Giannis and watching his games.
It is awesome to see Giannis in Fortnite. It will be interesting to see if any other NBA players get this kind of treatment or if Giannis makes guest appearances in any other video games.
